I sailed on the Independence of the Seas one year ago with my kids and it was one of the best cruises I'd ever taken. I was a bit disappointed in this cruise as we had a much different experience. Starting with the stateroom: The bed ... Read more

I have 25 cruises under my belt and usually sail Freedom Class, and Oasis or Allure. But I wanted an inexpensive getaway and this fit the bill. It was a quick cheap escape from the cold weather so I wasn't expecting much. I know its an ... Read more

When we arrived we were in awe! When we got to the room, I laid on the bed and found it most uncomfortable and going down hill toward my head and sunken in the middle. Before the day was over, I had a new mattress! I truly appreciate that! ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the St Kitts venue and we love this class of ship. The ship is dated and a bit tired, with worn carpet, missing caulk in bathroom, and we actually had a missing shelf in our bathroom. Our room steward was ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on the good deal we got, but from the moment of arrival, there was nothing that seemed "discounted" about our cruise (in a good way). We had the best time of our lives. The staff was friendly, ... Read more

We loved the Allure the first time we went on it two years ago and decided to go again on the Eastern Caribbean itinerary. (The first time we did the Western Caribbean itinerary.) We felt a little rushed on this itinerary initially. We ... Read more

It's been less than a week since returning from the Jewel of the Seas. Overall, it was a very nice and enjoyable cruise but there's a lot of room for improvement. This was my tenth cruise overall and first on Royal Caribbean. In the ... Read more

Oasis of the Seas was recommended to us by our daughter who went on the Allure of the Seas in Dec. She gave us a detailed lay of the land. There was so much to do that we only had our bathing suits on once in 7 days and since we've been ... Read more

My husband and I have never been on one of the huge ships so when the opportunity came to try it for relatively cheap, we jumped on it. This particular cruise stopped in Labadee, Haiti; Falmouth, Jamaica; and Cozumel, Mexico. There were ... Read more

I had some doubts about sailing on such a large ship - and I really dreaded the tender process. However the ship was beautiful and was very well organised. There was occasional difficulty getting a table at peak times at Boleros or Two70, ... Read more

We chose rci because we have been with other cruise lines and thought it might be worth a try. The ship itself is ok. If you like a floating ATM. Eg, a $4.50 bag of maltesers, $12.99. A $4.50 toblerone, $29.00. Even the people who ... Read more

We had a good time and enjoyed the itinerary. However, we were disappointed compared to our vacation on this ship last year. My Time dining changes and making all the restaurants have the same menu was not a positive in our opinion. ... Read more
